Pre-disciplinary hearing set for CPD officers involved in Tanisha Anderson's death

Cleveland's Director of Public Safety, Michael McGrath, announced that a pre-disciplinary hearing will be held Friday for Cleveland police officers Scott Aldridge and Bryan Meyers.

They are the officers who responded to a 911 call from Tanisha Anderson's family.

Anderson, 37, died on Nov. 12, 2014. She had been began acting out due to mental health and other medical issues so her family called 911 for help. According to family members, an officer used a brutal take-down move and that's what killed her.

On Jan. 2, the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner ruled Anderson's death a homicide.

Officer Aldridge, a veteran of 7 years, and Bryan Meyers, a rookie who has been on the job less than a year, have both been on restricted duty since the incident.

Today's hearings are not open to the public.

After the hearing is completed, McGrath will review the facts to determine if disciplinary action is warranted.
